Belokurova E.S., Borisov L.M., Pankina I.A

Russia is  the  main exporterthe maltingbarley  in the world. Russia is takes of the the leading places.Barleyis used for the production of malt brewing. Malt production is at a high level  аt this point inRussia. Not always brewing barley grown in Russia, suitable for the production of malt, so sometimes use imported barley.

In Russia, according to the instructions on the techno-chemical control of the brewing industry are determined by such factors as the energy of germination, germination capacity and vitality. In some European countries define the index of germination.This article provides a comparative analysis of methods for determining the vitality of malting barley and defined indexes of various samples of barley germination.
